The Flanders Environment Agency shall provide the European Commission, through the appropriate channels, with a list for a particular year of zones and agglomerations where exceedances of limit values for a particular pollutant can be attributed to natural sources. Information shall also be provided on the concentrations and sources and the evidence showing that the exceedances can be attributed to natural sources.


When the European Commission has been notified of an exceedance attributable to natural sources in accordance with paragraph 1, this exceedance shall not be regarded as an exceedance within the meaning of this Section.
